Education, jobs likely topics in Gov. Kasich’s speech

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich is
preparing to deliver a State of the State speech that is expected to
emphasize recent gains in private-sector jobs and lay out the
Republican’s latest ideas for benefiting the state’s economy.
Education is likely to be a key theme in Monday’s speech at the Performing Arts Center in Medina.
The
first-term governor has said he believes students need access to
vocational options perhaps as early as 7th grade. He’s also hinted
public schools should be partially "deregulated" to give educators more
flexibility to prevent students from lagging.
Kasich has said he’ll work to further reduce Ohio’s income tax rate, a goal set out in his 2010 campaign.

His Democratic 2014 rival says Kasich’s policies have not benefited Ohio’s schools or the overall
economy.
